it will cost you more to get your hood and bumper repainted. it will cost you much much more to get your hood, bumper, fenders and mirrors repainted (unless you dyi i spose), but if some people don't get as many chips as others so its not always necessary to do either (clear bra/repaint)Grimey said:For that price, I'd rather wait a few years and get the hood and bumper repainted again.
Resale......if I was appraising your car and saw the front bumper and hood repainted I would think Accident!!!! No matter what you said, I would think you were lying and so would any other dealer. Just a little FYI.Grimey said:For that price, I'd rather wait a few years and get the hood and bumper repainted again.
Wait a second. You said that it doesn't fade, but then you also say that if you wax it, it won't fade/discolor. Which is it?074doorSI said:It doesn't.
I have 3M on my Taffy FA5. The guy who did it for me, who is also a friend of mine, said that you need to put a coat of wax on the 3M once a month or it will discolor over time. He said it will turn kind of yellowish, which is most noticeable on a white car. On another color car, it will make your paint look faded.
Put some wax on it once a month and problem solved.
and you have to look pretty close to even see it on the car.
